Reader’s Email: Struggling To Find Sandals With Cerebral Palsy

July 9, 2015

I am struggling to find an appropriate pair of sandals and I am hoping the disability community may be able to help.

I am looking for size 1 flat sandals (yes I have to wear kid’s shoes) with laces that do up at the front because my feet swell in the heat in the poor circulation, which is part of my cerebral palsy. Laces mean that the shoe can be done up to take account of my swollen feet. My feet swell upwards, not outwards. Mum and I have tried every search term on the internet we can think of to find some.

Is there anywhere in the UK that sells such shoes in my size? Or does anyone know someone who would make such a shoe/sandal in my size?

Any help is appreciated, because at the moment I do not have any appropriate footwear for hot weather.

Surely, I am not the only one out there with this problem?

Thanks for your help,


Stacey Riley

    Some hospitals provide a service of shoes for disabled people my ex had some made they looked like shit but did the job, I don’t know if hospitals still provide this service or not.

What are you thinking?
